About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6853
Slope 128
Rating 71.8
Type Public
The 1926 Seymour Dunn design at Craig Wood is full of quirky, entertaining holes, like the eight, with its tree in the middle of the fairway. The par-3 13th has a straight canyon drop to a tiny green and perplexes USGA handicap raters year after year. The mountain scenery is spectacular, and the grounds crew's loving care keeps the course in much better condition than you'd expect.

very accomdating

Northern hospitality. The staff is really nice and they have made significant improvement to the clubhouse and parking facility. The fairways are close to summer rule and most of the greens were very good. Greens difficult to judge.

Fun course

Only drawback is that 2 greens are spotty. But many up here are bad. Best course for the money without a doubt.

Very scenic but it must have been a rough winter

A very nice layout but the conditions were poor on some holes. A few greens need to be closed due to large dead spots. Played from the tips and found the course fairly easy, mostly wide open. In early June the back 9 had black flies that were atrocious. Would play again with a similar deal.

Great adirondack golf course!

I have been playing here with a group of friends for the last 7 years. It is a fun course and usually in great shape. They made a lot of changes to the club house and it looks great. If you are in Lake Placid and love to golf, this is a must play!

This was a very fun course

Thank you very much Larry and Dick. You guys are what makes this golf course such a pleasurable experience. I came here from California and met up with my dad and brother . We stayed at Cochrane's Cabins this year and about twenty five years ago. This was by far a very fun and moderate to challenging course. Thank you for making my experience the best while out here vacationing.

Average club course. Beautiful scenery.

This course is a situated in the High Peaks region. Craig Wood is surrounded by mountains in every direction. As a result, even the worse round is tempered by the eye-popping views. Craig Wood does need some work. The fairways are pretty bumpy. So even your best drive in the fairway may result in a lousy lie. The course competes against more pricey establishments in the area. There is significant value here if you are looking for a moderately priced course with great views and don't mind skimping on the trimmings. Clubhouse offers cordial service with the usual fare serve on an open-air outdoor balcony, if you wish. Did I mention the views?
